Oculus vs PS4

 

 

Cordova, TN; July 2, in the year of our Lord 2018--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is exploring two of the main virtual reality systems. The first one is the Oculus Rift on the Personal Computer (PC). The second is the Playstation VR on the Playstation 4 (PS4). We have played with both of these enough to determine which one we prefer. We also have been able to note some of the issues with each of them. We will then deal with games, and give our personal experiences. Finally we will determine which one we personally prefer. Do you think you know where we will go with this? Do you think you can predict the final outcome? Let us know if you already knew the answer to those questions.

Oculus Rift is a huge pain to get set up. It is a huge pain to play anything in it. There are two sensors that have to be placed in the room. Then we have to set up the headset, and the two controllers. A gaming PC needs one HDMI port, and three USB ports. Put them in the wrong kind of USB ports and Oculus will not work. The Oculus Rift software must be brought up. Then if it is a Steam game, Steam VR has to be set up and turned on. Finally we can actually start to play the game. We also had to reset up the Oculus Rift software after setting up Steam VR. We have yet to find one physical copy game on Oculus Rift. Quite a bit of space is required to play Oculus Rift. There are games in PC VR that will get you sick.

The Playstation VR needs the Playstation Eye Camera, and many games require two Playstation Move controllers. That can be addition costs on top of the Playstation VR headset. One of the USB ports to the Playstation 4 is required to use the Playstation VR. There are physical copies of games of many of the PS4 VR video games. Many times the Playstation Motion controllers do not work with a game the first time we try. A good amount of space is required to play with the Playstation VR. The games on PS4 VR seem to be higher quality. There are some that will get you sick. Many of the PS4 VR games can also be found on the PC VR. We go right into a PS4 VR game from the PS4 menu screen.

The preference we have here at Family Friendly Gaming is the Playstation VR. There are physical copies of many games, it is more stable, easier to set up and play each time, and we have more fun playing virtual reality on the Playstation 4. Did you expect that outcome? Were you expecting something else? Have you played both of them? Which one do you prefer? Why do you prefer that one?

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.


God bless,
